Question Any other ways to remove the cam sprocket on a sti without a special tool?

Holy crap, these dang cam sprocket bolts are really on this engine pretty tight! Also I don't have the special tools to take them off. Is there any other way to take them off without spending LOTS of money on a tool? I can put a wrench the camshaft cuz there is no flat spots. Any ideas?

....some 'X' cut the head of the bolt with a cut-off wheel and pound it so the 'flat' comes away from the sprocket and take them out that way...

I think Cobb just released a tool for it that's not too expensive for a specialty tool.

yeah I know about the $50 one for the black cam sprockets but what about the silver cam sprockets? I need the tool for that one cuz it's different.

well I got all the sprockets off without the tool. Only thing is now, I need a new timing belt. Me and my buddies use the timing belt, some vice grips, a long breaker bar with a pipe on the end of it, and some muscle.

You wouldn't reuse the timing belt anyway... would you? At least I would hope you weren't planning on...
